Councilors Talk About Expanding Bangor Bus Service 

Bangor city councilors want to know whether the local bus system should expand it services to the outer edges of the city. Members of a council committee talked tonight about extending the Bat bus line to include outer Hammond Street and the Odlin Road area. Councilor Pat Blanchette says councilors are concerned about the number of people they see walking on those roads, since the bus service only goes as far as Hammond Street and Maine Avenue. Councilors say a grant to buy a fifth bus could make it possible to adjust the schedule and cover more ground.
